An upgrade to its NETernity SWE540A 6U OpenVPX VPX 40 Gigabit Ethernet switch offers the availability of a conduction-cooled variant, enabling the high speed deployment in a broader range of environments, including extreme heat and vibration.
Customers can standardize on a single switch, choosing the most appropriate ruggedization level according to the planned deployment.
The SWE540A offers the opportunity to create complete, 40 Gigabit-capable systems featuring the company’s SBC627 6U VPX single board computer and DSP282A multiprocessor. The new version of the SWE540A also provides a straightforward upgrade opportunity for existing users of the conduction-cooled GBX460 10 Gigabit Ethernet switch, simplifying the transition from 10 Gigabit Ethernet to 40 Gigabit Ethernet.
Advanced features and capabilities offered by the SWE540A include data center bridging to accommodate data-intensive applications. Connectivity includes four QSFP+ (40GBASE-SR4/LR4) ports and two 1000BaseT ports to the front panel, and 40GBASE-KR4/10GBASE-KX4 with up to 39 rear I/O ports for data plane and control plane to the rear panel.
